What do you know about GEOINT?
The field of geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) encompasses a wide range of factors, including social, political, and environmental factors. Geospatial intelligence is defined by the Intelligence Community as "the use and analysis of geospatial information to assess activities on earth that are geographically referenced."
For decades, geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) has played a crucial role in military operations and human security. GIS military applications have played a crucial role in ending conflicts that might otherwise have continued for decades, from providing critical intelligence to ending the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 to facilitating the Bosnian War negotiations in 1992.
It is fascinating to see how GEOINT has evolved over time and taken advantage of new technologies. Furthermore, we wanted to examine how governments and other organizations use GIS for GEOINT applications today, as well as some of the developments that have helped GEOINT evolve, including:
The four main uses of geospatial intelligence:
How is Geospatial Intelligence Different?
Geospatial Intelligence involves "outthinking" your opponent. Businesses, military operations, or humanitarian missions can benefit from the application. It is at the crossroads of the disciplines of geography and intelligence that Geospatial Intelligence is found. This intersecting point provides Geospatial Intelligence with the following qualities that can be applied to a wide variety of endeavors. Intelligence based on geography:
